Guatemalan Mayas block highways

Wednesday, February 22, 2017


Hundreds of people from Mayan communities have blocked two important highways to pressure Guatemala's congress to approve proposed constitutional reforms that would recognize forms of indigenous justice.

A move to include indigenous justice in the constitution fell two votes short of the 105 votes needed for passage in November. Legislators are scheduled to consider it again today.
